The HEART of this team, when I REALLY knew we were going to win, was in the second, UNFAIRLY GIVEN, rain delay, when ALL our girls were out of the dugout IN THE RAIN, joking, cheering with the STRONG 'Bama contingent, MOCKING the elements...mocking, OU, who was sitting, already defeated, in the protection of their own dugout.
THAT was the HEART of a champion...the strength of a winner.

I think more teams should play Alabama with a uniform gimmick...

all i have to say is that karma is a ......
Having three daughters my family has watched most of the softball tournament but had to miss last nights game . Glad to see the headline this morning and I hope my daughters can win one at Bama when and if they go there. Congrats girls on the first of many softball titles !!! RTR
Yeah ... I didn't really like their coach either Travis.
Yep. It was pretty special when they did the "ALA-BAMA" cheer out in the rain while OU was sulking in their dugout. They were down 3-1 and had little success against that OU ace, but instead of coming down with a case of the "poor-me's," they were chomping at the bit for another piece of OU. That's called "Being a Champion." If you were any kind of an Alabama fan, you probably felt some pride at that moment.
It was a case study on how to handle adversity.

Simply outstanding, TR. What an amazing and well-deserved victory.
Nice piece Travis, think Gasso's a little butthurt that her sasquatch, I mean pitcher, got rattled and shit the bed???
TR, well said!
Coach Murphy just commented on Jox about the rain delay. Said his girls were having fun during the rain and their team was sitting in the dugout upset.
These ladies not only brought home the first national title for Bama but for the SEC as well. Gutsy performance by a squad that spent much of the season not getting the respect they deserved. They played like champions, represented the university like champions, and now they are the champions. RTR!!!

Travis has got to be one of the best writers out there. Dude wrote a brilliant piece...
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
TR- your best yet. I was FIRED UP again after reading it. Its articles like this that make a +10 button needed.
Oklahoma was dreaming about a National Title. Alabama wanted it and they took it. They dug down deep and wouldnt settle for anything less than The National Championship.
well said. key to the game
Great series and victory last night! JT is incredible and the entire team and coaching staff are worthy of all the accolades a champion deserves.
"Forget about the fact that UA pitcher Jackie Traina had dealt with the same conditions in the top part of the inning"....Okies pitcher may have been a monster in size...but she was a weakling in the mental stamania area...at least compared to JT and the Bama gals
Best writing you've ever done, tr! We need more writing from you!
I like your writing style TR!
Wow man, you brought it.
Spot on Travis. Couldn't believe how quickly their coach started complaining after trying to sound so cocky in the interview. Watching the girls firing up the crowd, dancing in the rain while OU huddled in the dugout, you just knew Ol' Mo was on our side!
"Bama's pluck and grit have writ her name in Crimson flame!"
The ladies, last night and all season, were perfect examples of what the composer meant all those years ago when he penned the words to the best fight song in college sports. RTR.
